Parents Association & Parents Council
The Durham Academy Parents Association supports the school's academic, social, fine arts and athletic objectives. Parents Association encourages volunteerism, raises and disperses funds, promotes communication and cooperation, and provides input to the school on issues of concern and interest to parents. All Durham Academy parents are members of the Parents Association.
The Durham Academy Parents Council is the governing board of the Parents Association. This group comprises members of an executive committee; division representatives; members of schoolwide committees on matters such as diversity, wellness and athletics; and parents who organize both community-building and fundraising events. See a list of the parents who serve on Parents Council.
Parents Bulletin Board
The Upper School Bundle Up Durham Club — which works to provide winter coats to children in need in the Durham Public Schools system — is collecting coats of all sizes. The drive is under way now and will culminate with the home varsity basketball games on Dec. 14.
Coat donations may be dropped off at any of the Durham Academy campuses; collection bins are located in the lobby of Kirby Gym at the Upper School; in the main office at the Middle School; and in the Preschool/Lower School lobby.
In addition, Bundle Up Durham will raise funds to purchase new coats via a T-shirt sale; look for information on how to order a T-shirt in the coming weeks.
